Democrat leaders refuse to follow the science they claim to adhere to, and they need to explain why. On Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday, the host said as much, calling out those in positions of power for their hopeless devotion to identity over logic and reason. He began with the governor of Oregon, the incompetent bore named Kate Brown.
You see, she’s bi-sexual. So, celebrate already, will ya?
When Brown was elected governor in 2015, there was relative peace in “The Beaver State”. All that voters learned of Kate Brown was that she was bi-sexual, signifying automatic approval among the liberal masses.
But, Carlson pointed out, if one looked a little closer, “You noticed something a little weird, actually, Kate Brown was married to a man. Yes, he had a different last name, but he was still, as they say, on TikTok, binary. He was a dude. That’s fine, of course. But it was also a little confusing. How does having a groom at her wedding make Kate Brown an official member of the LGBTQ exclamation point community? No one bothered to ask. That kind of curiosity was forbidden. It was like wondering why we don’t call Barack Obama half White, which he is. It’s not allowed. Stop with the questions. Celebrate.”

But their world changed in 2020. Dinner was over and sharks riding elephants took to the streets. Everybody out of the pool. Antifa and BLM arrived to rule. The largest city in the state was overrun by thugs and people died. Then, the Wuhan flu. Thousands more dead. Stacked on one another, it was a lot to handle.
Tucker continued, “Unfortunately, Oregon did not have a very serious leader. It had some dopey soccer mom who got elected because she claimed she had a girlfriend in college. Kate Brown, unfortunately, turned out to be lighter than air. She didn’t know anything. She had no achievements. Under pressure, she wilted and became irrational. She was exactly the leader you do not want in a crisis. And yet she was the governor, which in the age of coronavirus made her very close to God. And she acted like it.”
KATE BROWN: Today, I’m announcing that effective Friday, August 27 masks will be required in all public outdoor settings or physical distancing is not possible regardless of vaccination status. … In addition, the Oregon Health Authority strongly recommends masking at outdoor gatherings at private residences where people from different households do not maintain physical distance.
The host wondered that if vaccines work, why are people who are vaccinated required to wear masks? Why is anyone required to wear a mask outdoors?
Marc Lipsitch, an epidemiologist at Harvard, pointed out this spring, “Outdoor masking has notable costs and really no evidence of benefits.” Even the charlatan Tony Fauci – who ordinarily only tells the truth in private emails – admitted the same thing in public:
“It’s pretty common sense now that outdoor risk is really, really quite low,” Fauci said.
In both spirit and letter, Kate Brown’s order is nonsensical and absurd. Carlson went on to say that “Even if you convinced yourself that large numbers of people were catching COVID while jogging, you still wouldn’t make people wear masks. Because drugstore masks, the kind that everyone wears, do not work. Cloth and surgical masks do not stop COVID. That’s not a guess. We know.”
But Kate Brown’s orders are now the law and if you ignore them, you will go to jail.
REPORTER: Do you want people calling the police on their neighbors?
KATE BROWN: Look, this is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake. What neighbors do, they call law enforcement because it’s too noisy.
REPORTER: That could be a yes.
KATE BROWN: Yes, yes.
But alas, Governor Kate Brown is just one of many who are woefully undeserving of their authority.
In Temecula, CA another disquieting report:
REPORTER: It was a tense first day in Springs Charter School in Temecula. Police were called on campus. The entire school went into lockdown and all because two students refused to wear a mask. … Victoria Nelson is a junior at the school and her brother Drew Nelson is a senior. The siblings say they chose not to wear a mask for religious reasons, believing it would be enough to exempt them from the mandate even though no one filed any request with the district or school. … Administrators say Victoria refused to wear a mask or leave class. That’s when we’re told the situation escalated. Listen to what the principal tells her.
PRINCIPAL: I need you to stand up or we will have to physically remove you from this classroom.
STUDENT: Please don’t touch me.
America is rapidly becoming a police state, trading freedom for safety as dictated by government overlords, and the insanity trickles up and down the chain of fools like a toy magnetic gyro wheel and comes to rest on the resolute desk of President “Bucks Stops With Me” Biden.
